Crighton Sets The Stage For Marty Stuart

This appeared in The Courier of Montgomery County - June 11, 2010

Marty Stuart, Elvis and barbershop choruses. Where can you hear all these without leaving Montgomery County? The question is rhetoric, of course, and the truth is you can see them right here in Conroe’s CRIGHTON THEATRE in upcoming weeks.

MARTY STUART, brought here by THE FRIENDS OF CONROE, comes to the Crighton for a one night spectacular June 25, 2010. Fans know that he began his career singing gospel as a child, went on to a bluegrass stint with Lester Flatt, then allied himself with Johnny Cash in the 80s.

Stuart’s “Hillbilly Rock” soared in the 90s, underlining his zest for every sound country, and the reasons that he has thus far won four Grammy awards, during his luminous career. A Grand Ole Opry star, Marty Stuart, who tours with his band, The Fabulous Superlatives, is revered for his fierce desire to promote and preserve every imaginable facet of country music.
